Co-President: Alexa Perez-Velazquez
My name is Alexa Perez-Velazquez, and I am the proud mother of three sons and a female Shih Tzu. Jared is in Ms. Salas's and Ms. Hood's class 5th grade class. I have served as Class Parent and enjoyed volunteering at past school events. I'm excited to be serving as PTA Co-President and Class Parent this school year, 2016/17. It is rewarding investing time toward the school community's growth. Outside of PS 191, I work full-time as a Relationship Support Associate at a bank. I understand the unrelenting demands of work, school, fitness, household chores or whatever your tasks may be - this is why support is key. I'm looking forward to engaging with all parents as we work to strengthen and grow our school together.
Co-President: Charles Taylor
My name is Charles Taylor and I am co-president of the 2016/17 PTA. I had the honor of serving as vice president last year. I work as a nonprofit funding consultant, but my true passion is my social justice artist collective that focuses on gentrification. Our dynamic new executive board is ready to partner with our principal, parents and families, school staff, students and community stakeholders, in maximizing our successes and eliminating our challenges. We plan to occupy our new school next year fully prepared with heightened academic achievement, an enriched school culture, and a cohesive school community. We plan to leave it all on the field this year.
